TV Talk: Dora the Explorer Lawsuit, Awkward Family Photos Series

Dora the Explorer-Being labeled “half” a man can earn you serious dollars. Two and a Half Men‘s Angus T. Jones has just agreed to a $300,000-per episode deal. The 17-year-old—contracted for 26 more episodes—also got a $500,000 signing bonus.

-The original voice behind Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer says she was cheated out of millions. Caitlin Sanchez and her family claim they were forced to sign a “convoluted and inscrutable contract” without legal help.
